John Losch Part 3 – Uses of the Lathe

John Losch has been giving hands-on presentations to the chapter for many years as well as serving as an emcee for a number of workshops. It is fair to say that John is one of the central, participatory members of the chapter. He has been repairing clocks for more than sixty years. John trained and worked at the Howard Clock Products Co, Waltham, MA. He was associated for 35 years with the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments at Harvard University as a restorer of clocks and early scientific apparatus. John ran his own clock and instrument restoration business from 1954 to 1997, followed by a short interlude as an instructor at the NAWCC School of Horology. John is now retired, but maintains his workshop out of habit.

From the East or West: Mass Turnpike (I-90), take Exit 10, then stay to the right after exiting the toll plaza and to Southbridge St. (Route 12) going south. The Elks Club is about 0.6 mile on the right.

From the North: follow Route 290 to Exit 6, then to Route 20 West. Follow Route 20 to the 4th set of lights (Route 12 intersection). Turn right (north) on to Route 12.

The exit comes up quickly, so be aware of this situation.
